The weather today was much better, (I was allowed out to play) and so was able to check some colonies! The sunshine and heady 12 degrees saw all my colonies flying at one site. I carried out full inspections on them all, including one artificial swarm, and saw all the queens. It was also quite re- assuring to see drones and some stores in most of them, although the fondant remains on for now.
